Moving On Up...

That was pretty much us a few days ago. This past weekend we moved out of our first home together. It was bittersweet. We were both very ready to get out of that town home and the community that we lived in (the leasing office and maintenance left a lot to be desired) but it was still sad to leave our first place. I am so tired today. So, so tired. And quite a bit sore. Last week some MAJOR packing took place and a big thank you goes out to my mom who came over twice last week and helped us pack. We would not have been able to do it without her! She's so generous and I'm so grateful! We had moving help come over on Friday evening and we got all the big furniture and most of the boxes and stuff out of the house. There was a little bit left but Collin and I got it all out on Saturday and Sunday. It was much too late Friday evening to deal with it. We are also so very, very grateful to both of our parents and our dear friend Butch for their help. It was a mostly stress-free experience because of them! Saturday and Sunday, once everything was out of the town home, Collin and I had to do some major cleaning to make it as close to the way it was when we moved in. It took a lot of time and work but we got it done. I am so glad that it's done. Now all we have to do is unpack and find places for our stuff in our new place...

Saturday morning we were lazy, but we needed it after the LONG day on Friday, and we played with our cat and had biscuits and gravy for breakfast. We took a break from cleaning on Saturday afternoon and went to go watch our friend Kirsten (Butch's daughter)'s basketball game. It was so fun! She plays on a 3rd and 4th grade team and those kids were so cute and having so much fun! Then afterward we went out to dinner with their family and very much enjoyed their company. Then yesterday we discovered that Rita's is open again! So we took a cleaning/moving break and enjoyed some delicious Italian Ice. I had a gelati with cheesecake ice and chocolate/vanilla twist custard. SOOO yummy! And Collin had Swedish fish ice. Did you know they had that?! It tasted JUST like Swedish fish. Do you guys have Rita's where ever you may be? It's only been around here for 3 years or so. We don't go often but it's a fun treat to have.

So anyway, how was your all's weekends? It was GORGEOUS! Spring is finally here and I was so excited. Even though we were inside cleaning most of the weekend it was still nice to enjoy the weather while we were outside, and to have the windows open while cleaning! I hope spring has arrived for you, too!
